The 2012-2013 Oliver Center Award program was focused on quality improvment. Congratulations to first place winners Joanna & Giovanni Geslani and Sangeeta Mutnuri for their project titled, "Diabetes Health Maintenance."

The Oliver Center promotes healthy habits. Check out this "Speak Up" video from the Joint Commission.

The Oliver Center awarded Dr. Rana Bonds a one-year grant to test the implementation of a program where patient's are videotaped practicing using their medical devices, sent home with those videos, and reminded regularly to watch them. We hope this expanded patient education will help patients comply with treatment and properly administer their important medications.

In partnership with the Cautious Patient Foundation the Oliver Center has started a pilot project with the Departments of Hematology/Oncology and Family Medicine to try the service "Your Doctor's Advice" with current UTMB patients.
